“There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now.
Time will reveal it. Be patient.” – Swami Sivananda


I keened for my desire to be met.
[Exactly as described. No other way.]

And the Universe, instead of giving it to me (or whatever), gave me the answer to desire’s deepest, darkest questions.

I’ve been in the thousand-petalled lotus of desire for years.

Afraid it was a maze.
With a Minotaur at the center.
(And no goddamned way out.)

But, no.

In the lotus of desire, there is only a dark, tight center.
And inside is a candle.
With one question: what are you willing to burn for?

I know the answer.
Desire can be used skillfully.

And now?
Now I am free.
